    Hello,

    I am trying to acquire a 1981 Ibanez AS 200 in very good condition. Completely stock. I have found one but the owner and I are trying to arrive at a fair price. Any thoughts on the value would be appreciated.

    I've got an 81 also and will say 1k for a local sale.

    After some research, I have seen several early AS200's going for between $1500- $1800. Seems a bit high to me but what do I know.

    I have an '81 AS-200 which I purchased in '81. I agree that they are in the $1,500 to $1,800 range--particularly if it is clean. I love those guitars. I was my #1 for nearly 12 years!

    yup 1300-2k. 1k is a great deal imo. Killer guitars, ask John Scofield
